Hello from PDX

Hey there awesome Spey community people! I got interested in Spey roughly two years ago and spend most of last year learning all the basics and ready to learn and maybe share some. Cheers!

Hi Jim,

Where's PDX? You made me curious enough to ask.

Welcome to the world of Spey fishing

And I say that because it is indeed a whole new world. Be sure to check out the Sandy River Spey Clave @ Oxbow Park & you'll see what I mean.

The idea behind it was a place were people interested in this stuff could meet & share knowledge of the sport. I was in on the first one back in 01. There were maybe a hundred in attendance, and that included reps from the local fly shops. There were no formal workshops, you walked up & introduced yourself & learned from the others in attendance. It has grown, but the camaraderie remains. Plan on getting there early Friday & staying for the duration. Some of the best happens after hours.

I fish because the voices inside my head tell me to.

Thank you all for helping out on the PDX translation.

Thanks for the info JD, I almost made it to the Sandy Spey Clave last year but I was really sick at that time (we have a little one that goes to daycare and collect all possible bacteria and viruses =D). I'm glad they are still going to have this year, I heard the not so positive story about the coordination side of things last year and seems like they worked it out. Anyways, thanks for the tips as well!
